I like this western. The cinematography's nice, the songs are classic, the actors are really good and convincing, also I think this is Victor Mature's best role.
It is beautifully shot and Henry Fonda is fine as Wyatt Earp, but that's about it. It's obvious from the beginning that the Clantons will be the bad guys and none of the characters are very compelling - Doc Holliday seemed like the most interesting one, but we don't get to know him that well, and Clementine gets almost no screen time, leaving the title quite injustified.
Great picture - Fonda is excellent as Wyatt Earp, and Victor Mature makes for a moody but very attractive Doc Holliday.
